Mission: We have been serving the families of Northern Kentucky since July 1999. We provide pregnancy testing, pregnancy counseling, parenting training, sexual health counseling and more. In nine years, Care Net has grown from a single office to a multi-site organization with centers in four counties: Boone, Grant, Campbell and Kenton. An interdenominational cooperative agency, Care Net does not discriminate on any basis and offers all services in a confidential, nonjudgmental atmosphere completely free of charge to the client. We work directly with women who are pregnant or who believe they may be pregnant, fathers of the children and supportive family members. Within our budget, Care Net?s trained volunteers offer pregnancy tests, lay counseling, parenting classes and basic supplies to any member of the community who needs support. Since our organization was founded, we have recognized that mentoring and counseling clients in an unplanned pregnancy is a key factor in the strengthening of the mother/baby bond, family relationships and involvement in a Christian community. We have nine years of experience offering parenting training, as well as offering counseling for adoption options and post-abortion healing. As stated in our mission statement, Care Net supports people before, during and after an unplanned pregnancy.
